Some of my best ever times were in my 30s, and some in my early 40s. I know its a cliche but ts just a number Shy1987, I have to keep telling myself that given the scale of my number

I know how you feel

I'm 31 and wanting a refund on my 20's, perhaps because I wasted them but the 30's dont seem to be going much better!

Suppose it really isnt old in the grand scheme of things but!

For what it's worth, my thirties were much more enjoyable than my twenties.

My 30s were also better than my 20s and my 40s better than my 30s (well, the first half of my 40s anyway). My 50s didn't start brilliantly, but now I am having the best times of my life.

I keep hearing that 50 is the new 40, 40 the new 30 etc. - so you're only just entering your 20s (and by the way, 50 is the new 30 as far as I'm concerned).

I'm 37 so looking forward to wasting my 40's........not sure I can handle another 10 years of non-stop fun!

I'm still waiting for a magic personality transplant pill to be invented.

Ditto - apart from being 32!

I was determined to make my 30's better than the non-existence that my 20's were. I still am, but two years on – there's been no positives nor progressions made. Certainly not though a lack of effort either. I continue on just…'existing'.

New decade – same old problems, unfortunately.

I've acted on age-old advice of getting myself out more and have done this for around three years, now. Has it changed anything? Nope. It's just put a dent in my savings account with nothing in the way of life progressions to show for it. Yet, I see others having done the same (often less) than myself over exactly the same time frame, but taking enormous leaps forward. Go figure…

Yet, people genuinely wonder why I lack confidence and self-esteem... Even some people who used to heavily criticise me, saying if I went out it would change many things for me, have since gone very quiet. The few who have accepted I'm making effort are seeing I'm doing what they've told me to do and that nothing works for me, but does for others (which is what I told them in the fist place).

Even if I do manage to get somewhere in my 30's…what's going to make up for what's currently 16 'lost years' of legal/adult-themed lifetime progressions? It's an enormous gap in my life where I would like some resolutions and questions answering first…
